A glittering glam rock non-stop circus Bowie party!
REBEL is a live circus rock tribute to the original rebel, David Bowie. Stage dive into the mosh pit for a night of live music, glittering glam rock, phenomenal acrobatics, breathtaking aerials and spectacular heart stopping sideshow. Live music combined with circus and comedy brings to life an incredible body of work that spanned over 50 years, and an aesthetic that broke ground and inspired generations.
REBEL has been inspired by the words of Bowie; “I want to tart rock up. I don’t want to climb out of my fantasies in order to go up on stage—I want to take them on stage with me.” REBEL is your Bowie fantasies realised – a live band, breathtaking circus, spectacular rock and roll sideshow. REBEL is much more than a tribute show, with aesthetics and theatricality inspired Bowie and fed into a live rock and roll circus extravaganza.
Headlined by the incredible multi-award winning Stewart Reeve, and featuring a rockstar band of artists from across artistic genres and co-created by Highwire Entertainment, the production house behind Rouge, Papillon and Pop Party Throwdown among others, REBEL is a non-stop circus rock and roll party.
★★★★★ “Stewart Reeve is an evocative tribute to David Bowie with an incredible stage presence that matches the glam rock figure that he cuts. [He] is a talent that could single handedly captivate an audience, but when accompanied by an equally glam live band and a fantastical whimsy of world class circus acts, festival-goers are treated to a high-sensory and emotive feast.” playandgo.com.au
★★★★★ “…a unique tribute show, and one which would make Bowie proud. It could even be one which converts a person to become a Bowie fan, if they are not already. It is, quite simply, a visual and aural feast.” alloveradelaide.com.au
★★★★ “A Bowie circus is the show we didn’t know we needed, mixing one of music’s great catalogues with some terrific circus acts. And it’s all served up by a very talented bunch of performers. It’s the kind of show where you can bring your parents and your kids, and everyone will have a great time.” theupsidenews.com
★★★★ “The talented Stewart Reeve led the band with a powerful voice that was eerily reminiscent of Bowie’s and more
than capable of paying tribute to the much missed superstar… accompanied by acrobatic acts which served as a beautiful visual accent to the music. All in all a very enjoyable show that ended way too soon! Encore!” theclothesline.com.au
